(ANSA) - Rome, September 21 - The secretary of ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party said Friday
that the PdL's embattled Lazio governor Renata Polverini was the
"victim" in a corruption scandal that has roiled the
administration of the region around Rome.
Angelino Alfano echoed Berlusconi in saying Polverini
should not quit.
"She is the injured party. She is the victim because she is
suffering, like the PdL, image damage," he said.
Polverini earlier this week hinted she wanted to step down
but then said Friday she had been "betrayed by a system that has
existed for years".
The scandal erupted earlier this month when the PdL's then
regional chief, Franco Fiorito, was placed under investigation
for suspected embezzlement of party funds.
On Thursday Fiorito, who has since resigned, said Polverini
must have been aware of how the funds were spent.
"The governor of the region Renata Polverini could not have
not known, since the decision was made by the whole
administration," Fiorito told prosecutors.
